Commercial Applicators

Commercial Applicator License FAQs:

Commercial Pesticide applicators are defined in C.R.S. 35-10-103 of the Pesticide Applicators’ Act.  

"Commercial applicator" means any person, other than a private applicator, who engages in the business of applying pesticides for hire or operating a device for hire that is designated by the commissioner as requiring licensure for use under this article.

A person not engaged in the business of applying pesticides is not required to be licensed as a commercial applicator under the Act. For example, a person who evaluates and/or recommends pest controls while not engaging in the business of applying pesticides or working for a person who engages in the business of applying pesticides are not required to be licensed under the Act.

 “Engaged in the business of applying pesticides for hire” is defined in Part 1 of the Rules associated with the Pesticide Applicators’ Act.  Engaged in the business of applying pesticides for hire means:

“The evaluation of pest problems; the recommendation of pest controls and evaluation of results; the mixing, loading or application of pesticides; and/or the soliciting, advertising, offering or contracting to do any of the above, in return for money or anything of value, including goods or services. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in the foregoing, the rendering of consultation services by an individual in evaluating pest problems, recommending pest controls and/or evaluating results, shall not be deemed to constitute the application of pesticides for hire, if said individual is not affiliated with, or soliciting business for, any person or business entity which performs the mixing, loading or application of pesticides.”
